Frequently Asked Questions

What is Azithromycin? 

Azithromycin is an antibiotic that belongs to the group called macrolides that is used to treat bacterial infections including the sexually transmitted infection chlamydia.

Aside from sexually transmitted infections such as chlamydia, Azithromycin may also be used to treat other types of bacterial infections such as chest infections like bronchitis and pneumonia; ear, nose, and throat infections such as sinusitis and tonsillitis.

How does Azithromycin work? 

Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) caused by bacteria called chlamydia trachomatis. It does not usually manifest in symptoms that is why getting a chlamydia test is important before taking a chlamydia medication. Azithromycin should not be used unless you are diagnosed as having chlamydia.

This antibiotic for chlamydia works effectively by killing the bacteria. It stops the protein production which is needed by the bacteria to grow and multiply. By killing the bacteria, the infection is removed together with it.
